Howl’s Moving Castle

by Diana Wynne Jones
Overall: 2 out of 5 stars

Category: Movie

Personal Evaluation: I really enjoyed the book but the movie was absolutely awful. I understand that the scriptwriters needed to cut things from the story to make it fit, but usually they are able to do so in a way that still makes sense. Not only did they cut essential parts, they also changed a lot so that none of it made any sense! It was very frustrating to watch, even if you had read the book and knew where it was supposed to be going.

What might interest children: It’s anime, and there’s magic and adventure. Beyond that, the story is so confusing I can’t see what else kids would find appealing.
